The Caribbean Sea

Fresh to strong SE winds are ongoing over the northeast and south central Caribbean ahead of a late season cold front moving through the Gulf of Mexico. Recent scatterometer passes indicate fresh to strong E to SE winds off northeast Colombia and near the Gulf of Honduras. Seas over the south central Caribbean are likely 8 to 10 ft, with 5 to 8 ft elsewhere. A recent altimeter satellite pass showed NE to E swell over the tropical Atlantic has largely decayed below 8 ft. No significant convection is observed at this time.

The cold front will enter the NW Caribbean late today, and stall from central Cuba to central Honduras by early Mon, before dissipating through late Tue. The strong E to SE winds off Honduras will diminish as the ridge north of the area shifts eastward ahead of the front. But strong NW winds will follow the front from the coast of Quintana Roo to the Gulf of Honduras, before diminishing Mon. Elsewhere, the fresh to strong trade winds will continue to pulse near the coast over the south central Caribbean through mid week.

It's getting wild already. Was predicted to hit around 2 PM - Imagine something in Belize arriving early. Dramatic drop in temperature. Dogs not happy.

Things are getting wild in town - lagoon water level is up, San Mateo is flooding and people leaving for higher ground.
Somewhere in town three transformers blew in a fiery burst.

From Belmopan...

There has been a bubble of cool air come down from the Gulf over night. Ironically that caused last night to be a very warm night, but it has caused considerable mid-level cloud and a lot of rain, presently only north Belize effected. The mid level wind and cloud is from the NNW, the Caribbean winds are only out at sea from the SE, but it is the high-level cloud from the WSW that is moving the rain passed Belize.

Looks as if today will be mainly cloudy, rain in the north, a little in the extreme south, probably little or none in central Belize, the odd patches of sunshine only.


Temperatures in Belmopan :
( Coast usually cooler, hills even cooler ) Last night min. 25°C 76°F Yesterday max. 32°C 91°F

That cool front has dissipated, and being back filled in by some strong winds from the W or even SW still with a few rain showers. But now there is another cool front coming across the Gulf. I am seeing it on the Cloud picture, the picture I use is much larger than the one I put out on my weather messages. It looks as if our weather will stay cloudy for the next day or so, and with pockets of rain, but behind that front, if it crosses over us before it dissipates, may bring clear skies and cool air.



As a cold front entered Belize, a strong storm with hurricane-like winds hit San Pedro!




From San Pedro to Belize City to Corozal, people were taken by surprise by a very powerful squall that drought with it over 50mph wind gusts - Strong enough to snap tree branches and blow away unsecured items and even weak roofing. Wow!!
